Five Minutes with Recycled Percussion’s Justin Spencer

Justin Spencer was that toddler in the kitchen drumming on a kettle with a wooden spoon. The Recycled Percussion creator confirmed as much, telling us that his favorite musical instrument is his “personal spaghetti pot.” It’s been nearly two decades since Spencer first circled up a group of friends and repurposed some pails and a kitchen sink (he stole that from his dad) to perform in a high-school talent show. He was later convinced to “keep up the madness” and did. The group appeared—and nearly won—Season 4 of America’s Got Talent. Now the crew is making noise at The Quad Resort & Casino. What exactly can fans expect at a Recycled Percussion show? “Interaction, energy, laughter and a whole lot of free cookies,” Spencer says.
